Crazy Little Thing Called LOVE!

So it's February and we are fast approaching Valentines Day!! The shops are laden with chocolates, flowers and fuzzy litttle toys!! eek!!
Why not buy your special lady or man something a little bit more personal this year?
What could be more romantic than buying them one of these gorgeous unique Heart Pin Cushions by the ever talented Sophie Elm of Jeff Josephine Fame!!!

Sweetheart’ pin cushions were made in the First World War, often by convalescing and disabled soldiers as well as civilians to be given to their loved one. Many were given to sailors by their sweethearts to remind them of them on their long voyages at sea. They were covered in beads, ribbons, lace and fabric badges of the persons battalion, or sometimes a poem.......... How Romantic!!

The design has been linocut and then hand block printed on a light cream cotton sateen fabric. The front design has three colours, and the back one colou,r and just a beautiful with space for you to add your loved ones initials.
These are truly unique and I'm sure that special lady would be very happy to receive one of these for Valentines Day!!

They can be found in our online shop or why not pop in to the gallery to see them, along with lots of other alternative Valentines Treats.

Give the chocolates and flowers a miss this year and buy your sweetheart something extra special!!
